overall

Heaven Hill impressed with their inaugural batch of Larceny Batch Proof, but their second batch of 2020 comes up a little bit short compared to the previous one. It's mainly the result of its overly hot finish that is ethanol fueled, and features strong wheat graininess. Despite this, if you missed Batch A120, Batch B520 is a fine runner-up, though I’m still waiting for Larceny Barrel Proof to reach its full potential.
